Some years ago, ""new math"" took the country's classrooms by storm. Based on the abstract, general style of mathematical exposition favoured by research mathematicians, its goal was to teach students not just to manipulate numbers and formulas,
by PAUL E. PFEIFFER
This approach to the basics of probability theory employs the simple conceptual framework of the Kolmogorov model, a method that comprises both the literature of applications and the literature on pure mathematics. The author also presents a ...

This compact, well-written history - first published in 1948, and now in its fourth revised edition - describes the main trends in the development of all fields of mathematics from the first available records to the middle of the 20th century. ...
by C. J. ELIEZER
This concise introduction to the methods and techniques of vector analysis is suitable for college undergraduates in mathematics as well as students of physics and engineering. Rich in exercises and examples, the straightforward presentation ...
by W. W. SAWYER
Brief, clear, and well written, this introductory treatment bridges the gap between traditional and modern algebra. A carefully devised progression from the concrete to the abstract demystifies the subject, offering worked examples and ...
by ROLAND SCHINZINGER
Beginning with a brief survey of some basic mathematical concepts, this graduate-level text proceeds to discussions of a selection of mapping functions, numerical methods and mathematical models, nonplanar fields and nonuniform media, static ...
by ZEEV NEHARI
Conformal mapping is a field in which pure and applied mathematics are both involved. This book tries to bridge the gulf that many times divides these two disciplines by combining the theoretical and practical approaches to the subject. It will ...
by HARVEY COHN
The subject matter loosely called ""Riemann surface theory"" has been the starting point for the development of topology, functional analysis, modern algebra, and any one of a dozen recent branches of mathematics; it is one of the most valuable ...
